Monday starts dry across the UK. In the southern half of the UK there has been quite a widespread frost and there is patchy fog too.

Through the day it remains mostly overcast in Scotland and in the far north there is a risk of outbreaks of rain. Elsewhere there will be sunny spells, although fog could be slow to lift in places. 

Temperatures generally range from 5C (41F) to 10C (50F), but it remains colder where fog lingers. See the rain and lightning radar for the latest view.

High pressure dominates

Through Wednesday a weakening band of rain moves down from the north and by the time it reaches southern counties it could just lead to cloudy skies. Brighter skies follow and in the north it turns colder.  

Thursday is looking dry and cold in most places, but wintry showers are possible in eastern coastal counties. A widespread frost develops overnight.

Through Friday and the weekend high pressure brings more settled weather. There is an ongoing possibility of frost and fog.
